With his Top Artist win, Drake beat out Ariana Grande, Cardi B, Post Malone and Travis Scott. He dedicated the award to his mother, Sandi Graham.

“I just want to thank my mom for her relentless effort in my life,” he told the crowd. “I want to thank my mom for all the times you drove me to piano when I didn’t want to take piano. All the times you drove me to basketball and hockey — that clearly didn’t work out. All the times you drove me to Degrassi. No matter how long it took me to figure out what I wanted to do, you were always there to give me a ride, and now we’re on one hell of ride. So, thank you, I appreciate it.”
